The designer of this circuit had fitted two (waterproof) loudspeakers in his bathroom and connected them to the stereo system in the living room via a long cable. Naturally, this promptly led to the desire to be able to use the remote control unit from the bathroom. Commercially available extension sets for this purpose were judged to be unsatisfactory, primarily because they require an additional IR transmitter diode to be fitted in front of the amplifier.Although the repeater shown here requires a length of coaxial cable, it provides a simpler, and above all more reliable, solution to the problem.
